Here's how you can add some shitake mushrooms to your 'food forest' garden. Very healthy.
Known for their ability to support the immune system and fight the development of tumors, there are a lot more reasons to grow your own fresh mushrooms.
Note: that grocery store mushrooms, unlike wild and Asian mushrooms, may be dangerous to your health.

|The author performed his inoculation only 3 days after cutting the logs. This is probably advice that is best not taken, as trees naturally produce anti-fungal compounds. It takes several weeks for these compounds to break down and disappear after the wood is cut.|
Here is a good spawn plugs tutorial: http://fungiperfecti.com/plugs...
I'd love to do this myself. Maybe this year!

|Thanks, dave. Me too, Maybe next year. Maybe alder is more receptive to the fungal spores?|

|I don't have any alder but I have plenty of oak and I believe that's the wood I'll use.|

|You can also grow morrels, but it is a bit complicated. (A real challenge).|
Morrels season is just starting now in the Northern Michigan Woods!
